ISIS took control over a shipment of weapons including Kornet missiles and missiles equipped with GPS technology in Sinai on its way from Iran to Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jareeda reported.

A security source in Cairo told Al-Jareeda that it was a large shipment whose entry into Gaza was prevented by ISIS Sinai leader, who recently cut ties with Hamas. "Such missiles can be used to kill our soldier," the Egyptian official said. "Kornet missiles are supposed to remain at the warehouses of their home countries and not in the hands of terrorist organizations that are fighting against us in Sinai."

According to the report, the Egyptian army recently announced that Kornet missiles were found in ISIS warehouses in the Sinai Peninsula. The Egyptian Army took over the equipment.
